proceedings at the california public utilities commission. supervisor campos: i will turn it over to michael campbell of the san francisco public utilities commission, as well as jason fried from lafco. >> hello. michael candidate, director of cleanpowersf at the sfpuc. i have a short update. hopefully a sweet update. in terms of where we stand, as you know, we have been waiting for the board of supervisors to act. during that interim time, the good outcome of that time has allowed us to go back and renegotiate with shell and get better terms regarding the collateral amount. notably, we have been able to discuss with shell and get them to agree to reduce the amount of collateral that would be going into escrow from $15 million down to $7 million, a reduction of $8 million. that is 3 positive. it increases to $4.5 million. that frees up $6 million from the initial 19.5 appropriation. the appropriation ordinance that will go before the commission, before the board of supervisors , it keeps the $19.5 million appropriation, but we are using that additional $6 million that has been freed

its regulators, among them the california public utilities commission and the california independent system operator, to propose and develop options that would further enhance reliability in the city. and the proposal that pg&e will talk about today is to connect the 230 kv line from the embarcadero substation in downtown to the petros substation. -- potrero substation. the idea is that if there were a major earthquake in the city, that in some way it disconnected the existing 115 lines that serve thedede substation, that there would be seismically-sound redundant transmission lines serving downtown so that the lights will not go out. this is a major transition project. these do not occur that frequently in the city. they are a highly regulated type of project. pg&e has indicated that they are starting the process to apply, formally applied to their regulators to kick off this process, and one of the routes they are evaluating is a long port property. i think i have covered the proposed route on port property. now i would like to invite robert donovan, the senior planner of land and
